My Heart Belongs in San Francisco, California: Abby's Prospects (My Heart Belongs) by Janice Thompson






ourney now to San Francisco, California, of 1853 where...
An English socialite finds more treasure than expected on her trip to the American West.

When Abby Effingham becomes stranded in the middle of the California gold rush, her money depletes quickly even while her prospects for marriage increase daily. But Abby is on a mission to find her mother—not romance. Will a ridiculous scandal keep her from traveling on, or will it wake up an aloof innkeeper to the treasure right under his roof?

Samuel Harris runs a moderately priced hotel where Abby and her family’s elderly butler find shelter. He is looking forward to when she—and her parade of suitors—move on, though he concedes to let her work in his restaurant. When the sassy socialite is in trouble, will Samuel come to her rescue or find himself alone?

My Review





I loved this story, a privileged young woman, gets down and dirty, and doesn’t seem to mind at all.
The story shows beginnings of San Francisco, actually its steamy side, and our girl ends up there on a quest to find her mother. The Lord took her in hand and she ends up in the right place at the right time. I felt God put Cookie and Sam in Abby’s path, and what a delight to watch her change.
I also would love to see Nigel as he became a different person, the sideburns?
What a great movie this story would make, and as I read this I felt I watching it.
I received this book through Net Galley and the Publisher Barbour, and was not required to give a positive review.
